Sorry to hear about your injury. I fractured my heel in an auto accident when I was 16. I've been told by many orth. docs that it's one of the worst bones to break in the body. It took me 20 years to find a doctor to fix my foot the right way so hopefully I can save you alot of pain and waisted time.
By the time I got my foot fixed correctly, they had to saw 2" of bone off of my hip to build me a new heel. Also loaded me up with a half a dozen screws. I just had 2 removed on Monday from the bottom of my heel. I was reminded that they were there every time I took a jump this past ski season.
Make sure you keep your toes really flexible and streched, otherwise you'll get hammer toes. They have to remove the middle bone in your toes and put pins in to straighten them. I also had to have my achillis lengthened in three places to get my toes to straighten out. I don't mean to ramble on about my injury or to scare you but I'm just trying to let you know how bad it can get if you don't have the right doctors. All the regular orthopedic surgeons that I went to just kept wanting to give me steroid injections. After so many years of walking without my ankle being aligned correctly, my foot had caved in to the point that I looked like I was walking on my ankle bone. When I could no longer squeeze my mangled foot into a ski boot, I went looking for a top surgeon who was willing to take the risk of fixing me.
Do yourself a huge favor and find a orthopedic doctor that has had fellowship training in treatment dedicated to the foot and ankle. My doctor is in Pontiac, Michigan (Dr. Arthur Manoli, II), but he has a slew of doctors that did their fellowship with him all over the U.S. You can find a ton of posts about him on the internet.
I've had such great success with my surgery that I hope by sharing my experience I can help others who are in the same situation that I was in to get the correct treatment in the first place. Life couldn't be better now! I have no problem chasing my 3 kids around - now I can catch them. This year I became a professional ski instructor - just passed my level 1 this year, and going for LII next season. I run 16 miles a week and swim 2 miles 3 days a week. I'm a workout Junkie!
I hope this information helps you Snowdog. Good Luck and Best Wishes for a speedy recovery!
